A half-gallon of 2% milk,
A carton of eggs,
A quart of orange juice,
A head of romaine lettuce,
A 2 lb. can of coffee, and
A 1 lb. package of bacon
As I was unloading my items on the conveyor belt to check out, a drunk standing behind me watched as I placed the items in front of the cashier.
While the cashier was ringing up the purchases, the drunk calmly stated, 'You must be single.'
I was a bit startled by this proclamation, but I was intrigued by the derelict's intuition, since I was indeed single. I looked at the six items on the belt and saw nothing particularly unusual about my selections that could have tipped off the drunk to my marital status. Curiosity getting the better of me, I said: 'Well, you know what, you're absolutely right.
But how on earth did you know that?'
The drunk replied, 'Cause you're ugly.'
You know you're from California if:
1. Your co-worker has 8 body piercings and none are visible.
2. You make over $300,000 and still can't afford a house.
3. You take a bus and are shocked at two people carrying on a conversation in English.
4. Your child's 3rd-grade teacher has purple hair, a nose ring, and is named Flower.
5. You can't remember . . is pot illegal?
6. You've been to a baby shower that has two mothers and a sperm donor.
7. You have a very strong opinion about where your coffee beans are grown, and you can taste the difference between Sumatran and Ethiopian.
8. You can't remember . . is pot illegal?
9. A really great parking space can totally move you to tears.
10. Gas costs $1.00 per gallon more than anywhere else in the U.S.
11. Unlike back home, the guy at 8:30 am at Starbucks wearing a baseball cap and sunglasses who looks like George Clooney really IS George Clooney.
12. Your car insurance costs as much as your house payment.
13. You can't remember . . is pot illegal?
14. It's barely sprinkling rain and there's a report on every news station: "STORM WATCH.."
15. You pass an elementary school playground and the children are all busy with their cells or pagers.
16. It's barely sprinkling rain outside, so you leave for work an hour early to avoid all the weather-related accidents.
17. HEY!!!! Is pot illegal????
18. Both you AND your dog have therapists, psychics, personal trainers and cosmetic surgeons.
19. The Terminator is your governor.
20. If you drive illegally, they take your driver's license. If you're here illegally, they want to give you one.

Levels of THC, the agent in marijuana that produces feelings of euphoria, and in some users mild hallucinations and paranoia - have risen dramatically because of indoor techniques. Thirty years ago, most marijuana contained about 7% THC. Today, indoor growers boast THC levels of 25% or higher thanks to the additional care
The Florida market, a pound of indoor grown marijuana goes for upwards of $4,000. But in the Northeast, the best market for Florida growers, the same marijuana goes for about $8,000 a pound. Unlike their closest regional rivals, Florida growers can produce up to four crops annually.
Hey, that's some serious moola.... no wonder the migrant workers are going for it.........whew!

Otty Sanchez, 33, is charged with capital murder in the death of her infant son, Scott Wesley Buchholtz-Sanchez. She was recovering from her wounds at a hospital, and was being held on $1 million bail.
This is so gross and gruesome, that I can't even fathom the severity of it.

I need to find a new place to party, and be around a different crowd. I've gotten to the point that the local pub, I go to is so boring that I can't enjoy myself one bit. I know all the people that go there, and with the exception of a few stragglers I can't tell you most of their life stories, or backgrounds. Knowing this, how the hell can I find any excitement in getting with a guy that frequents the establishment? I already know who he's been with, and what he's likely to do. That's not much fun and certainly, not enticing. I've been told about a VFW, close to my home, but the cops are bad in that area. I really don't need to come out and head down the street only to see the flashing lights of a squad car behind me, pulling me over to give me a ride down town to the station for a DWI. So, what to do, is still a problem, and I guess I'll keep going to the place that's familiar and being bored to hell.........

Not surprisingly, the idea is getting traction in California, home to both the nation"s largest supply of domestically grown marijuana (worth a estimated $14 billion a year) and to the country"s biggest state budget deficit (more than $26 billion).
Even the most ardent marijuana advocates aren"t expecting nationwide legalization anytime soon. Instead, any action is likely to come on the state and local level. For now, all eyes are on cash-strapped California, where high taxes could take on an entirely new meaning.
God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found him resting on the seventh day..
He inquired, "Where have you been?"
God smiled deeply and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, "Look, Michael. Look what I've made."
Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, "What is it?"
"It's a planet," replied God, and I've put life on it.. I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a place to test Balance."
"Balance?" inquired Michael, "I'm still confused."
God explained, pointing to different parts of earth. "For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while southern
Europe is going to be poor. Over here I've placed a continent of white people, and over there is a continent of black people. Balance in all things."
God continued pointing to different countries. "This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice."
The Archangel , impressed by God's work, then pointed to a land area and said, "What's that one?"
"That's the State of Texas , the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful mountains, rivers and streams, lakes, forests, hills, beaches and
plains. The people from the State of Texas are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent, and humorous, and they are going to travel the world.
They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high achieving, carriers of peace, and producers of good things."
Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then asked, "But what about balance, God? You said there would be balance.."
God smiled, "There's Washington DC . Wait till you see the idiots I put there.

Every time, we put a new person on the US Supreme Court, we have to go through this crap. I understand that they have to make sure this person is of good reputation, and will make decent unbiased rulings for the betterment of our country. But, damned the extra crap, that these people come up with........I'm ready for it to be over, and I'm sure she is to.

I noticed that the children, were taking in all that was going on and really noticing the big screens. The smallest child, seem to be a bit overwhelmed and kept hiding behind someone or his memorial list. You can see that these children, were fathered by the same person, even though it wasn't Michael himself.

City attorney spokesman John Franklin said Wednesday that his office aims to have a report ready for the City Council by Friday.
More than 17,000 fans attended the pop star's public memorial service on Tuesday. The event is estimated to cost up to $4 million in overtime for hundreds of police officers and other services.AEG Live, which owns the Staples Center, hasn't committed any money to cover the city's bill. Still running up debts even in death........how ironic!

This country will pull the other countries into this damned thing. I for one am tired of our country trying to help all these countries, who don't give a damned about us, until they need help. It's always, some country wanting to cause an uprising or a take over. We've been in these things so long it's second nature to us to send our money to the other places.
